Vikings hold 17-14 lead at halftime

The first half of the Vikings-Packers game went roughly according to plan.

It featured a ton of Packers yards, and some crucial mistakes that prevented points.

It also featured Brad Childress making a head-scratching decision at the end of the half.

Leading 17-14, the Vikings had second-and-six on their own 38-yard line with 35 seconds to go.  With an offense moving the ball at will in the second quarter,  Childress decided not to call another play despite having two timeouts.

Randy Moss threw his hands up in disgust and yelled at the sideline.  Moss knows clock management; Childress’ decision didn’t make any sense.   Childress also failed to challenge an early Packers touchdown that appeared would have been overturned.

The end of the half distracted from the fact that the Vikings are running the ball very well (130 yards) and Aaron Rodgers threw the first two red zone interceptions of his career. 

Both these teams have played close games all year, and Sunday night appears no different.

    Vikings cheat

    Brad Childress has a new nick name: Jellyfish. Because he is a spineless bitch.

    Glad its a good game and both side are giving it their all. Chilly showed a lack of balls by not trying to get in FG position before the half. Aside from that, tipping my hat to GB for their attack.

  4. Vikes-N-Favre says: Oct 24, 2010 10:17 PM

    Screw GB. They shouldn’t even be close in score right now. The officials just love favoring those idiots.

  5. Notoroius B.U.G. says: Oct 24, 2010 10:23 PM

    Vikes have serious CB issues…Frank Walker and Chris Cook? Might as well have Jimmy Smith and Bob Nelson out there…

  6. Vikes-N-Favre says: Oct 24, 2010 10:26 PM

    GB is a joke. They act like they do shit on their own. Aaron Rodgers must give great head to get favored like that. The officials should be put on a plane a crash it on purpose. A model franchise? Please, give me a f’n break.

    Childress is clueless. This game tanks for the Vikes and it is on Childress

    BrInt helped the Pack take the lead again.

  9. TitletownUSA says: Oct 24, 2010 10:32 PM

    Pick six Brent! Where are you Pervy? Pants on the ground! Oh, my ankle!

  10. BigBear123 says: Oct 24, 2010 10:33 PM

    BrInt having flashbacks and think he is a Packer again?
    Pick-6!

  11. Schatt Maub says: Oct 24, 2010 10:34 PM

    Brett Favre sucks. In all seriousness, I mean. He is now a terrible quarterback. He just slings the ball without regard to the location of a) his intended target; b) the pass defenders; and c) the pass rushers.
    I’d be absolutely pissed if I were a Vikings fan. This is the guy who held the team hostage all off-season? The guy who had to be begged out of retirement?
    Good Lord.
    Think Randy Moss is second-guessing his diva act in New England yet?

  12. 2MuchTime says: Oct 24, 2010 10:34 PM

    It is so frustraing watching Childress throw a game away

  13. Contra says: Oct 24, 2010 10:35 PM

    Damnit Favre! DAMNIT!

  14. QBcoach2 says: Oct 24, 2010 10:35 PM

    I believe it is time to bench Favre or tell him 2 go back 2 Mississippi….Doing nothing but hurting the team

  15. QBcoach2 says: Oct 24, 2010 10:40 PM

    I believe it is time 2 sit Favre if he throws another straight into the arms of the other team

    The only difference is that I highly doubt Walker and Cook were blowing each other at halftime like the Jimmy and Bob would.

  19. PercyChuggs says: Oct 24, 2010 10:44 PM

    Yeah, don’t mention the Packers TD that wasn’t, and the Vikings TD that was (but wasn’t), Florio. Other than that, it’s been a totally even game!

  20. QBcoach2 says: Oct 24, 2010 11:01 PM

    That’s it…..Favre needs 2 b benched!!!!!!!!! If it wasn’t for the Vikings D, they would b 0-5 right now and on there way to 0-6….Shoulda stayed retired

  21. ArcticEdge says: Oct 24, 2010 11:03 PM

    Should have been a pentaly on Mathews for throwing Favre down like that. You can’t do that to FAVRE!

  22. BigBear123 says: Oct 24, 2010 11:03 PM

    BrInt 3 picks in last 7 throws.
    Work it BrInt!

  23. TakingBackSundays says: Oct 24, 2010 11:04 PM

    Vikes are awful. It’s a good thing they’re not in a real division.

  24. CanadianVikingFanII says: Oct 24, 2010 11:08 PM

    Brad Childress, Brett Favre, Darrell Bevell, Leslie Fraiser. GET OUT OF MINNESOTA!

  25. JoeSixPack says: Oct 24, 2010 11:10 PM

    Seems like Moss is having flashbacks to the days with Oakland…
    … probably second guessing his decision to leave a team with a coach who has a clue

  26. BigBear123 says: Oct 24, 2010 11:31 PM

    Haaaaaaaaaaaaas!!!!

  27. TitletownUSA says: Oct 24, 2010 11:33 PM

    Pants on the ground! Bye Bye Brent and don’t come back!

  28. rarson says: Oct 24, 2010 11:33 PM

    Viking fans, this season is a bust for you guys. Sorry, but Favre sucks. He blew this one on his own.
    If the Vikings have any sense at all, they won’t try to get him back next year.

  29. wydok says: Oct 24, 2010 11:37 PM

    I’m actually a little sad. I’ve been very disappointed in Favre. I think he has screwed up his legacy. But you could see by the way he was acting that this was his last game at Lambeau field. I’m glad the Packers won. It’s just too bad Favre wasn’t playing for them at the time.

  30. JimmySmith says: Oct 24, 2010 11:38 PM

    Thank God for Childress. That was not a touchdown by Quarless by Col Klink is too stupid to call a challenge.
    That ends up being the difference in the ballgame, a Viking team that outplayed the Packers but lost because their head coach is a dumbass. Percy Harvin, Brett Favre, and AD all deserve better.

  31. pkrlvr says: Oct 24, 2010 11:39 PM

    Nice giftwrapping refs. Glad the pack won, but had the refs got either TD call correct, they wouldn’t have…..

  32. granadafan says: Oct 24, 2010 11:39 PM

    Gee, Brent’s ankle and shoulder sure looked fine when he was jumping around like House of Pain on Pervy’s non-TD with under a minute left and he was fist pumping like he was on Jersey Shore. After the game, he was sure laying on the limp.
    What a joke BrInt is.

  33. Contra says: Oct 24, 2010 11:41 PM

    Good game by the Packers. I tip my hat to them on tonights game. The Vikings had the game in hand but managed to take themselves out of it.

  34. ICEWALKER says: Oct 24, 2010 11:43 PM

    PACKERS win, all that matters.
    Vikings, great game. The two teams were so close to each other. Coaching was bottom line for this game.

  35. packers4life says: Oct 24, 2010 11:45 PM

    The comments on this thread further proves that Viking ‘fans’ are the most hyprocritcal fans in the league, hands down. Just a last week they say Packer fans whine about penalties but what are Viking fans doing?? Whining about penalties.

  36. VikesLover says: Oct 24, 2010 11:45 PM

    You Packers may have 12 Titles, but the Vikings will always have 2009. When we beat you twice. SKOL!!!!!!!!!!!

  37. Calistin says: Oct 24, 2010 11:46 PM

    Lol if the Packers are as bad as everyone would make them out to be, how bad are the Vikings for getting HANDLED??
    Go ahead, cry about the refs, we expect it.

  38. Pervy Moss says: Oct 24, 2010 11:48 PM

    Man…the Pack got lucky tonight! Last second Favre didn’t come through….congrats on your SuperBowl victory….we are thinking of the playoffs…

  39. vikescry1 says: Oct 24, 2010 11:48 PM

    say what you will viking fans but we were down to 3 d-lineman! our d filled with practice squad players stopped your starting offense!

  40. Majik Bullet says: Oct 24, 2010 11:53 PM

    Great game to watch, Favre just couldn’t get it done, way too inconsistent as he has been all year. Not at all impressed with GB and Rodgers either. Without vast improvement, only one of these teams gets to the playoffs with an early exit.
    With the miscues of Favre and Chilly, the Vikes deserve to lose, just can’t help but wonder how the outcome is affected if the refs get the Quarless and Shiancoe TD calls right. Even so, the Quarless one is more on Chilly, I saw the bobble from my recliner, how in the world did the coach and everyone else miss it?

  41. BigBear123 says: Oct 24, 2010 11:54 PM

    Chilly throws Favre under the bus in post game!
    SCHISM!
    CHISM!
    HISM!

    @ Contra
    The Packers beat the vikings! THE PACKERS!!!

  43. jusford says: Oct 24, 2010 11:56 PM

    Time for Viking fans to start crying about the refs. And where was the goat ropper tonight? A little different when not facing a back-up tackle.

  44. madmike says: Oct 25, 2010 12:00 AM

    2 TD swing, thanks NFL officials!

    What? Brett Favre threw an interception? Say it isn’t so!

  46. lebowski says: Oct 25, 2010 12:01 AM

    Wouldn’t be a Viking loss without their whiny legions complaining about the refs.

  47. lars thorwald says: Oct 25, 2010 12:05 AM

    Poor Vikes. Hey Chilly, how’s that first-round bye lookin’?

  48. ArcticEdge says: Oct 25, 2010 12:06 AM

    Congrats to the refs, you robbed us of another win once again.

  49. HighwayKiller says: Oct 25, 2010 12:06 AM

    Good call. He unleashed the fury alright.

    Good luck to our Vikings friends next week at New England.

  51. dannylaruso says: Oct 25, 2010 1:09 AM

    The old gunslinger throwing another 3 ints. Chilly should have challenged that td if he had any sense. Outside of that, which could have been fixed, the refs did fine tonight.

    you can have your 2 wins in 2009, no titles and 41 year old interception machine….
    I’ll take our 12 titles, 2010 win and better all time head to head record.
